Clearview , Ontario, Canada
August 10, 2019
Size: Smaller than a housefly
Was found on my shirt after being outside in my vegetable garden. Found in the morning. Has wings, 6 legs and black body. The rear end of the body was pointed and hooked almost like a bee stinger. The antennae as you can see looks like a crown of eyelashes/featherlike. All black and two red/brown spots on its “shoulder blade” area.
